I urge anyone who has a share portfolio in nominee accounts or in an ISA or SIPP (which must by law be held in nominee accounts) to read this thread about the bankruptcy of Beaufort Securities: Rather than being ring-fenced, it seems that such a portfolio is at risk of losing 40% of its value over £50,000 if the provider of the nominee accounts…
